The Bollywood veteran actor Anupam Kher is one of the most renowned actors in the industry. The actor has starred in several blockbuster films like The Kashmir Files, among many others. While recently the actor was seen taking a dig at the Bollywood filmmakers Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala for not casting him in his movies anymore. Here’s what he said-
Anupam Kher Takes A Dig At Karan Johar & Sajid
Talking about not being a part of the mainstream Bollywood films, Anupam told Times Now Navbharat, “I am not a part of mainstream cinema in India today. I am not. I am not doing any Karan Johar film, I am not doing any Sajid Nadiadwala film, I am not doing any Aditya Chopra film because the offers have not come. I was a darling of all these people. I have done everybody’s films. But I am not blaming them for not casting me anymore. But because they were not casting me in their films, I found a path where I did a Tamil film called Connect, I did a Telugu film called Tiger Nageswara Rao. I have also done Sooraj Barjatya’s Uunchai.”
Talking about feeling bad about not being cast in their films he added, “Otherwise I could’ve have sat down & said, ‘Arey yaar mere dost aur mere jo itne kareebi they ek zamaane mein, mujhe ab lete nahin hain filmon mein toh main ab kya karoon main toh barbaad ho gaya.’ Of course mujhe takleef hoti hai, dukh hota hai ki kyun nahin lete bhai main toh inki sab filmon mein kaam karta tha. But, it’s not a complaint & neither am I holding it against them. I am just saying that sometimes when one door shuts, so many other windows & doors open. I am rediscovering myself as an actor.”
